Here are the Cumberland County Schools head football coaches' forecasts for this week- end's Super Bowl LIV game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. Brian Randolph, Jack Britt — I like Kansas City, 37-34. Kansas City has a wealth of skill and speed on offense, and I love the Honey Badger (defensive back Tyrann Mathieu) on their defense. Mike Paroli, Douglas Byrd — I think Kansas City will win 41-38. The 49ers had a great running game and pass rush against the (Green Bay) Packers, but Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid will find a way to win. Jacob Thomas, Cape Fear — Two evenly matched teams. Kansas City has the edge at quarterback, but I feel that San Francisco is a better team in all three phases of the game and this seems to be their year from start to fin- ish. Forty-Niners in a close one. David Lovette, Gray's Creek — Chiefs, 35-28. The Chiefs have so much speed on offense and (quarterback Patrick) Mahomes is a difference maker. Bill Sochovka, Pine Forest — Kansas City by two touch- downs. Their offense is so explosive and has a lot of weapons. Very tough to stop. Bruce McClelland, Terry Sanford — Great matchup. Speed vs. power. Old school vs. new school football. I like San Francisco being more physical — running game and pass rush getting home without having to blitz. San Francisco 34, Kansas City 28. Duran McLaurin, Seventy-First — Chiefs will win, 34-21. Slow starts haven't seemed to hurt the Chiefs because their oppo- nents have struggled to maintain offensive execution and special teams play. Just too many weapons and an underrated defense will be too much for the 49ers. Rodney Brewington, South View — San Francisco, 31-21. San Francisco has a very special defense. The defense has the ability to rush and hurry the quarterback with only four defensive linemen. They have a strong running game and a solid quarterback. Ernest King, Westover — I feel the teams are evenly matched, but I give the edge to San Francisco. They have a great running game and a whole lot of weapons, three running backs and a receiver corps that can score any- time. A defense that really gets after it and the team has enthusiastic pride about what they do.
